Quote:I miss those days man!
Thor had some killer slobber knockers back then!
Yes the halcyon days of Thor when the comic was not trying to be deconstructed and had a writer in charge who genuinely seemed to respect the character.
Quote:Seems like after Thor lost to Superman in the crossover he just lost his grandeur!
Not sure I agree. We just had a string of writers who either didn't get enough time (Oeming, Giffen), were too decompressed and late (JMS) or started abusing the character for their own agenda (the current crop).
Quote:Like Marvel was upset about the fan backlash and was like okay...you Think Thor is unbeatable? well we'll show you he's not!
That doesn't sound very logical. Also don't recall Marvel ever saying he was unbeatable.
[qiote]And then butt kicking after butt kicking came one after the other!
I can't be the only one who made this connection.
Interesting theory, but its the writers writing these stories, the outcomes are not based on gambling odds due to prior win/loss streak.
Quote:Anyways sorry for getting off track but man I miss those Jurgens days and seeing Thor kick royal behind!
Back then Thor had respect. But I think the problems of the past 15 years are more a case of writer ideology than because Thor took a few losses in the early 2000's.
It just felt personal to me...even though I know that's a ridiculous notion it's just how it felt.
But you're right and thanks for taking the time to give me your opinion on the matter.
You hit it spot on with the decompression issue!
That's the biggest thing I find with Cates current run..
4 issues of his would of been one issue back in the 70's and 80's...
It's like reading the Sunday comics and waiting an entire month as opposed to a week for like 5 minutes of reading material!
It's infuriating to me...
